Parental Alienation Awareness Day – Bubbles of Love Day

Torn 2 Peaces:

Please spread the truth about alienated parents by sharing information. Consider helping to facilitate an awareness walk/run to bring awareness to those of different ages and professions — those who can influence alienated youth — some of the runners may even be alienated youth who are then introduced to the concept. Many runners are so much interested in the cause as the run, the competition, but then they may learn about it. Runners would also receive a t-shirt they pay for when signing up for the run — how much awareness could that bring? Runners sign up months in advance, so planning way ahead is necessary, but lots of information is a Google search away!

Letting Go: When Alienated Parents Give Up.

(Reblogged from: http://parentalalienationsupport.com/2011/11/20/letting-go-when-alienated-parents-give-up/)

When a parent endures parental alienation, various emotions materialize.  Some are angry and others feel helpless.  On the other hand, a number of rejected parents evolve into dedicated empowered advocates, but just as many are depleted both physically and financially. Some parents may ask, when do I let go? Clearly, alienated parents (also known as rejected parents) are grieving parents.  In 2002 Dr. Richard Gardner wrote, “For some alienated parents the continuous heartache is similar to living death.” Sadly, for many rejected parents, the sorrow never ends.

Most are familiar with Elisabeth Kubler-Ross’ Five Stages of Grieving.  First is Denial.  Denial is not recognizing reality.  As noted by Dr. Gardner (2002), denying reality is obviously a maladaptive way of dealing with a situation.  In fact, denial is generally considered to be one of the defense mechanisms, mechanisms that are…

Woman gains support of psychiatrist in Family Court case of PAS

Torn 2 Peaces:

Dr. Michael H. Stone, professor of Clinical Psychiatry at Columbia College of Physicians & Surgeons. “The parent with the most control – the most money – tends to prevail irrespective of the merits of the given custody case.”

The best suited parent for custody or visitation is not always the parent who receives custody and visitation from the civil court arena, he said. “The parent with the most money can hire an attorney of bigger quality; they also can make one motion and counter motion after another – exhausting the resources of the other party.”

Susan Carrington, a Maryland mother, who is involved in a custody dispute in Rockland County Family Court, is one such example, he said.

A leading New York forensic psychiatrist told the Rockland County Times that family court proceedings, to the detriment of families, are bought and paid to the highest parental bidder.

“This sort of thing happens in more than half the custody battles that I am involved in,” said Dr. Michael H. Stone, professor of Clinical Psychiatry at Columbia College of Physicians & Surgeons. “The parent with the most control – the most money – tends to prevail irrespective of the merits of the given custody case.”

The Movie “Big Eyes” & What We Can See

big eyes

The movie “Big Eyes” is entertaining and the settings are gorgeous.  According to Times magazine and other publications as well as the subject herself, the movie very closely follows the actual story of the artist couple, though the actual behavior of the man behind it all is even more despicable than what the movie shows.

A journalist in the movie said it was the most bizarre story he had ever followed.

“Big Eyes” paints a window into the inner life of a sociopath and his victims. The film also illustrates the vulnerability of single moms — how easily moms can fall prey to predators. (Of course men can & do fall prey to female predators as well).

This movie should be an eye opener for those who are clueless about the workings of a sociopath, narcissistic abuse and the vulnerability of moms. No doubt there will be no shortage of individuals who judge Margaret for being a victim. Victim blame is a favorite sport of those who see themselves superior to fraud and coercive control.

But some folks will respond with compassion.  They will see that this does not only happen in the movies. They will see that narcissistic abuse can happen to good people.

Many of us who have been victimized by such personalities now see what others are blind to. We may see what our kids are blind to — youth of varying ages who are victims of sociopath games and exploitation.

My Sweetie & I were not far into the movie, and I was able to see that the “wonderful” man who swooped Margaret (a single mom) off her feet was too good to be true and would steal her means of supporting herself and her daughter.

Like Walter Keane, my ex took credit for work I did to help build his business. Like Walter Keane, my ex claimed to have been places and accomplished things he had not (my ex said he was boots on the ground with Operation Desert Storm and he said he was stepping over dead bodies in Somalia — he was never there, let alone involved in any dangerous military conflict). Like Walter Keane said about his ex-wife Margaret, my ex said I was crazy and I couldn’t make it without him. My ex also threatened me and had terrorized our dog. My ex also slept around (though it seems my ex mostly preferred porn in the privacy of his real estate school).

This movie has the power to make others see and help make victims free.

I’m not crazy, and I did make it without my ex.

Watch the movie & be inspired.

Parental Alienation IS child abuse and emotional abuse

Torn 2 Peaces:

We often only become aware of our own situations and feelings when others share their personal experiences, especially when we are victims of an abusive parent, spouse, or child. Have you been a victim of Parental Alienation? Please share your personal story so that kids of parental alienation/hostile aggressive parenting/domestic violence by proxy can recognize what has happened to them. It is only when we know are we free to make positive, healthy changes instead of drowning in confusion and the resulting risky and/or sick behavior.

Parental alienation should not be confused with parental alienation syndrome (PAS) as one is the act of and the other is the result of and in Australia many courts refer to parental alienation as “alignment”, parental alienation must have been practiced to have alignment happen.

Parental Alienation is the act of a parent or person coaching/convincing the Children to “break away” from the other parent by way of brainwashing the Children into thinking badly of the targeted Parent often to the point of them refusing to having anything or little to do with that parent, in most cases the Children actually not only believe the words of the Alienator unconditionally at the time but are also coached in such a way as to believe that it is themselves that have made the decission to not love or want to see the other Parent.

Alienators are cunning in their ways and…
